Christmas at Portland Head Light

Christmas at Portland Head Light

Standing on Cape Elizabeth at Fort Williams Park, Portland Head Light is the oldest lighthouse in Maine. It was constructed at the directive of George Washington, and completed in 1791. On this winter afternoon, the eastern skies behind it picked up just a hint of color from the sun setting on the opposite horizon.
